THE DRAMA. The Stage-the mighty telescope of mind!" "TheStage should be the great school-house ofmoi-ality, and the lessons taught therein, although adorned with the attractions of poetry and action should be forcible, and calculated to amend the heart." STEELE. On Wednesday evening last, we paid a visit to our commodious and very comfortable little theatre, for the purpose of witnessing Sir Edward Lytton Bulwer's celebrated play of the Lady of Lyons", in which Miss C. Poole, sustained the beautiful character of Pauline, and we were happy to find this lady" at home" in the part, in truth she appeared fully to appreciate the author; as however it is to be repeated on Tuesday evening, we shall reserve our notice of the play till our next, when we hope to have space to enable us to do it justice, which is not the case this week. A little interlude The Welsh Girl," followed, which intro- duced us to a new face in the person of Mrs. Palmer, although this lady had but little to do, she reminded us forcibly of Mrs. Yates more we need not say. Mr. Bass's Sir Owen Griffiths" in this piece was the perfection of acting. The performances at the Theatre last evening, were under the patronage of the President and Gentlemen of the Aberystwith Cricket Club, and the House was filled. The performances consisted of a Comedy entitled Single Life with two farces, besides the usual accompaniment of Songs, Dancing, &c. but we really would with all due deference to Mr. Bass, submit that he should curtail the uumber of pieces, three in one evening are too many, and five hours too long to admit of the interest being sustained. We perceive by advertisement, that the Countess of Lisburne, bespeaks the play on Monday evening.
